Boardwalk Empire The Complete Blu-Ray Collection

Gangsters, gamblers, politicians, whores, businessmen, and hitmen.  Caught in a Prohibition era where the booze switched hands and crossed many borders.  Alcohol,  America’s prized narcotic of choice, served up in all the “Tea” houses and night clubs serves as the backdrop for this once forgotten world.  You had the Italian mob, the Jewish gangsters, the crime bosses of Harlem, the Chicago crime syndicate, and many other notable forces that made their rounds along the Atlantic City boardwalk.  Caught in an era way before the Trump and the Tropicana.  The Complete Boardwalk Empire Blu-Ray Collection ($240) will drop on May 19th.  You get all 56 episodes on 20 discs plus loads of extras:
